Live Abundantly

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word ‘abundance’?

The first thing I used to think about was money. In my eyes, if you were seeking abundance, you were trying to gain more money. But money isn’t central to life. There are so many other avenues of living an abundant life.

Your problems may be vast in quantity but that is not what I am talking about. I try to the glass as half full, rather than half empty. Though my problems may overflow at times, there is so much more abundance in my life.

Taking things for granted is one of the ways we miss seeing our abundance. Every moment you take a breath; time with your loved ones; having a job and being able to provide for yourself and others– these are all things that provide an abundance of love and safety.

Many people look at the stumbling blocks in their path and use up their precious energy to be upset with them, never realizing that every block in life is correctly placed. This is an abundance of growth.

We are amidst a pandemic and if you are reading this, you’ve managed to either avoid catching Covid-19 or is surviving or survived a Covid-19 infection. This is an abundance of health.

Living an abundant life means living a life of gratitude. When you are grateful in your heart and mind, you have the ability to see the abundance within your life.

How will you live abundantly today?
